I want to join BRASS

Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVCs) are a tax-efficient way to save more towards your pension benefits.  The Scheme's main AVC arrangement is called BRASS.

Your BRASS AVCs ​are ​​invested in a range of funds with the aim of ​building up extra benefits ​over time.

You can manage your own funds or have them managed for you. See what BRASS fund choices might work best for you.

Your BRASS benefits ​​are added to your main Scheme benefits when you retire. ​Or, you can transfer them out.

The benefits

  • Your BRASS contributions are taken from your pay before tax ​so they are tax-free 

    (unless you go over your Annual Allowance).  

How do I join?

​Return a Joining form to your employer or speak to them directly about setting up payments.

​Look after your BRASS

It's a good idea to check your investment funds regularly to make sure they're working for you.

The easiest way to do this is by registering or signing in to myRPS online. You can also see how your funds are performing and change your investments whenever you want.
